The Nantes-based Lhyfe and the local Swedish energy company Trelleborgs Energi will perform a pre-study on the set-up of a green hydrogen production plant in Trelleborg.
The inquiry focuses on 5.0 MW of green hydrogen production capacity, covering the questions of energy supply, production capacity, technology selection and location, and the utilisation of hydrogen production by-products: waste heat and oxygen.
The study results will be presented in the summer of 2022.
The potential plant, possibly up & running in 2024, will feed mobility and industries' needs for zero-emission energy.
"We want to create sustainable energy solutions locally and renewable green hydrogen is part of that plan. Hydrogen is a clever, multi-purpose energy carrier and can play a part in solving the climate challenge. We believe in making a real difference, in 'walk the talk,' and our renewable hydrogen initiative is one way of doing that," Magnus Sahlin, CEO of Trelleborgs Energi, commented.
Björn Arvidsson, Area Manager Nordics & UK at Lhyfe, added, "We want to win the climate fight. That means investing in new technology, and building and operating green hydrogen production as soon as possible. This is targeted for 2024 here in the very south of Sweden. We strongly believe in the need and value of green hydrogen within industry and mobility. This project confirms Lhyfe's strategic presence on the Swedish market, from south to north!"
Lhyfe's portfolio includes 93 projects under development in Europe (over 4.8 GW of total installed capacity). The company's first plant in the French Vendée went online in September 2021. The 300-1,000 kg H2/day output is powered by wind energy.
